Nick, I have the old traditional click and pawl Battenkill reel - the BBS's older brother - I use the 3/4 on my 8' 2 WT and I think it's fine, though I've never had anything smaller to compare it to.
What? Discontinuing it? That's too bad. Access are a different aesthetic and I don't know that I've heard a bad thing about BBS. I wasn't going to pull the trigger but now I'm rethinking it...
